What’s so simple about hyper converged IT? Everything.
Infrastructure simplicity is a front-burner initiative for just about every IT manager and it is easy to see why; complexity in the data center costs time and money. It takes away from time that can be spent innovating for the business, and puts IT initiatives at risk if infrastructure inefficiencies cause bottlenecks and downtime.
Complexity can be overcome with a very simple change to the data center in the form of hyper converged appliances. These powerhouse devices can tame the complexity of even the most chaotic data centers, by replacing siloed, inflexible legacy resources with software-defined, flexible resources that can be managed centrally and deployed on command.
The HPE Hyper Converged 380 is one such device that can go a long way to simplify your infrastructure. It is built with HPE ProLiant DL 380 Servers—powered by Intel® Xeon® processors—and contains factory-integrated compute, storage, networking, and management components purpose-built for heavy workloads. It eases the burden of manual configurations plagued by incompatibility. So, what are the benefits of a hyper converged platform to reduce infrastructure complexity? Here are three key points.
Ease up on your IT staff—The HPE Hyper Converged 380 comes with centralized management that displays all your infrastructure into a single clear view. It uses HPE OneView to display a user-friendly dashboard that makes it easy for IT generalists to make updates and troubleshoot infrastructure problems. And management tasks are performed with point-and-click ease. VMs, for example, can be added in just five clicks, and updates can be done in as little as three.
Dig deep into insight—The big payoff of the HPE Hyper Converged 380 is the software-defined intelligence that provides instant analytics and diagnostics into system performance. With it, staff can remotely monitor and fine tune system performance with end-to-end insight into trouble spots, and help plan for future demand with real-time insight.
Rein in costs—Data center inefficiencies like over-provisioning can drive up costs and eat away at your bottom line. Hyper converged appliances let you scale resources on demand, starting with as little as two nodes, or as many as 16. This eliminates the costly practice of having to invest IT dollars in future IT capacity. Software-defined resources can be configured for any workload, making the most of your hyper converged investment.
